    Default Valentino Fango Petale Handbag VS Yves Saint Laurent Nadja Purse


    Valentino Fango Nappa Blossom Petale Handbag.
    Over the last half year or so with the introduction of the Valentino Blossom Satchel Bag and the Historie Purse I have discovered a new obsession with Valentino handbags. Those bags, as well as the other new additions to the house are so stunning, and have been on the top of my want list!

    Pictured above is one my favorite newbies to Valentino flower rose line, the Fango Nappa Blossom Petale. Available only in the color clay (at this time). This beauty features layers and layers of buttery leather, that spiral around to form a lush rosette pattern. I am such a sucker for rose designs. Additional noteworthy features: This bag is accessorized with golden hardware, feet to keep your bags bottom from picking up germs, a secure top zip closure, a cotton lined interior spacious tummy with a capacity of 13.5" width x 12.5" height x 5"depth, plus double strap options for either carrying by hand or over the shoulder action (double top handles have a 4" drop / detachable crossbody strap, 11.5" drop). Right now the Fango is available at saks fifth avenue for $2495 preorder.

    I know what you vintage YSL fans are thinking. Of course this spiral rose design should look familiar.. do you guys remember the Yves Saint Laurent Nadja Rose purse? Oh yummy, that was like one of the first designer bags when I was a teen-ie that triggered my bag obsession.

    Yves Saint Laurent Nadja Purse.
    Above is a vintage campaign pic of the lovely Nadja purse, designed back in the early 2000's (I'm pretty sure this bag debut spring 2003) by the fabulous one and only Tom Ford. This bag as been long sold out, however if you're lucky you can spot one on ebay.

    Side Note: In 1999, Gucci acquired the house of Yves Saint-Laurent and Parson's educated Tom Ford was named the creative director of that label. During his time as Creative Director for YSL, he won numerous Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards. That shouldn't be a surprise, his ready to wear designs were amazing. His departure date from the house of YSL was in April 2004.

    And the bags look pretty similar don't you think?

    One common problem with the YSL Nadja was that the rose design flattens over time. I sure hope the Valentino Fango beauy doesn't have the same problem.

    So what would you guys rather have? A vintage YSL Nadja rose bag or the newer Valentino Fango Patale purse version?

    I like the vintage YSL more. I like that it is a shoulder bag, I don't like the handles with the longer strap on the Valentino.

    They are both pretty and unique, but I tend to go towards the Yves Saint Laurent Nadja Purse. I love it.
